Cool Site of the Week--Tomate d'epingles

Combining vintage, recycled, retro and new materials into totally unique creations, tomate d'epingles creates quirky, yet really wearable, handmade jewelry and accessories. Some of my favorite items from this shop are the earrings and pendants (top two images featured below) made from gorgeous vintage boiled leather and accented with woven gemstones and copper wire. The fabulous ring (third image) features a vintage wood button, the same gorgeous red vintage boiled leather, and an explosion of gemstones. Finally, I love the earrings made from vintage scraps and gemstones. Fun, lightweight and colorful jewerly that is just perfect for the upcoming warm weather. Also, check out their new line of fab-tastic fabric accessories, such as cuffs and wrist-warmers, made out of 100% recycled vintage threads.
